Samsung Galaxy A40, the upcoming A-series device of Samsung has cleared FCC certification, suggesting it may go official soon. The certification reveals certain specifications of the phone like the display size, device measurement and connectivity.
The Samsung Galaxy A40’s model number on the FCC database is listed as SMA405FN, which was first spotted by MySmartPrice. According to the FCC certification listing, Galaxy A40 will feature a 5.7-inch display which is completely unexpected as the entry-level A-series smartphone, Galaxy A10, sports a 6.2-inch display size. With Galaxy A40, it seems like Samsung is trying to cater to users who prefer a small device for easy one-hand usage.

The device has been subjected to leaks in the past and recently it was certified by Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG).
The Galaxy A40’s existence was confirmed when a support page for the device went live on the official Samsung Germany website. Earlier this month, the official Samsung UK website created a dedicated product page for the upcoming smartphone.
